, welcome to "weekends with alex witt." what is happening out there. ten days and counting. president obama and house speaker boehner left washington without reaching a deal on the fiscal cliff. before heading to hawaii, president obama said he met individually with leaders of the house and senate, asking them to work toward a package that prevents a tax hike on middle class americans. >> this is something within our capacity to solve. it doesn't take that much work. we just have to do the right thing. so call me a hopeless optimist, but i still think we can get it done. >> earlier in the day, speaker boehner held a news conference. a vote on his so-called plan "b" was scrapped thursday night when it became clear it did not have enough support among house republicans to secure passage. >> a situation where because of the political divide in the country, because of the divide here in washington, trying to bridge these differences has been difficult. if it were easy, i'll guarantee you this would have been done decades before. >> joining me now, congressional reporter for "the washington post
the ball before it went out, coach. come on, alex, the ref did not call that! i touched, it's their ball. team! alex. alex, good call.
in the package. >> it was fascinating, alex. so much has changed from 2011 when we heard from republicans that the boehner rule, i. efrmgts any extension of the debt limit must be matched by matching spending cuts the norm from now on. seems president obama does not want to play that game as he said. walking away from the press conference today withes the gop leadership on capitol hill, a x alex, they're still engaging in the trench warfare. i asked speaker boehner about the $250,000 bush tax cuts, all the polling shows the country will think republicans are to blame if we go over the fiscal cliff, six out of ten voters in november said the tax rates should go up, how much longer can he afford to politically keep this pledge and he said look, you heard it there, the rates when we close the revenues, loopholes will go up on the rich people. that still is the mindset. what's interesting, is talking to republicans leaving the house conference gop conference this morning, there is a lot of support for speaker boehner. there aren't cracks like there were during the debt limit where he had a f
of kids can be empowered in a lot of different ways. i think that one of the things is that alex doesn't tell his parents and this is absolutely what happens. parents do not necessarily know what's going on with their kids when they walk onto their bus, when they are at school and i think that often kids will know when their parents are under stress and there is a lot going on at home and parents are busy. you know, the communication isn't great. or even if the communication is great, often kids are ashamed. they are afraid that either their parents won't take them seriously or if they do take them seriously that they are going to march into school and do something that's going to make the situation even worse. there are situations where kids don't trust that the adults are going to be able to make their situation better or make it stop without actually making them feel more alienated or making the bullies know that they have bullied in such a way that now it's worse. kids don't want to tell and kids don't often necessarily want to perceive what's going on his bullying. i think that on
in "bully" is alex doesn't tell his parents come and this is absolutely what happens. parents do not necessarily know what's going on with their kids when they walk onto the bus when they are at school, and i did that often kids will know when their parents are under stress if there is a lot going on at home and parents are busy. if, you know, the communication isn't great or even if the communication is great, often kids are ashamed, they are afraid that either their parents will take him seriously or if they do take them seriously that they're going to march into school and do something that's great to meet the situation even worse, and in situations where kids don't trust that the adults are going to be given to make the situation better or make it stop without actually making them feel more alienated or making the bullies know that they've told someone in such a way that now it is going to get even worse, kids don't want to tell. and i think that kids don't necessarily even want to proceed with is going on as bullied. so one of the things for the parents that suspect their ki
. >> [music] hello, i'm alex trebek. for over 10 years now, i've been representing the colonial penn life insurance company and i'm here today to talk with some of their insurance representatives about their guaranteed acceptance life insurance. that was a really good point. hi, alex. hi, everyone. i thought it'd be interesting to hear from you what your customers say are some of the things they like best about colonial penn's whole life insurance. who's gonna start? well, it's guaranteed acceptance for people over age 50. they don't have to take a physical or answer any health questions. and it gives them peace of mind knowing that their family has some insurance to help cover funeral costs. and other final expenses. great point, and that's something everybody needs to plan for, especially in this economy. it costs just $9.95 a month per unit. it's an affordable way to provide protection for loved ones. yes, and that rate never goes up. and their coverage never goes down because of their age. they can get permanent insurance at a price that fits into their budget. ale
afternoon, alex. it's good to be here. >> val, let's first talk about what it's like to be on the other side of the n.r.a. it's worth noting that you carry a consealed weapon yourself. you have a long career in law enforcement, and, yet, the n.r.a. gave you an f. were you surprised at the amount of vitreal directed at you by the nra? >> i spent 29 years in law enforcement carrying a gun every day in that profession, grew up around guns. my dad was an avid hunter. i still have a consealed weapon and still continue to care a gun. i am a strong supporter of the second amendment, but it wasn't enough for the nra, and so i have to ask the question too why would they not support a person with those credentials? i think there's obviously something else at work there, and i think that their silence speaks volumes actually. >> val, when we talk about the power of the nra, mayor bloomberg said their power in the political sphere is a myth, and yet, you have the support of mayor bloomberg, but i didn't win your race. i guess following that loss how optimistic are you that other democrats or republicans
with the republican defense highly tauted fan of the eagles, ed rendell and alex wagner of msnbc's "now." governor, i want you to read what's going on here. first speaker boehner defended the gop's tax proposal saying it does take a bite out of the rich but president obama held firm to tax rate hike on the wealthiest. let's listen to the back and forth. >> revenues we're putting on the table are going to come from, guess who? the rich. there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates, which we believe will harm our economy. >> let's allow higher rates to go up for the top 2%, that includes all of you, yes. but not in any way that's going to affect your spending, your lifestyles, or the economy in any significant way. let's make sure that 98% of americans don't see it -- a single dime in tax increases next year. >> so, john boehner, the speaker for the republican party in this partisan fight is saying, he's already socking it to the rich. he's willing to raise their taxes in various forms but just n
largely by tom's experience on commission staff. we are fortunate to have with us alex pollock to offer his thoughts on the book. alex is resident fellow at the american enterprise institute. i got to know alex a decade ago when he was president and chief operating officer of the bank of chicago from 1991 from 2004 and i would also say i always found him to be one of the most insightful commentators on the financial service industry so with that i turn the podium over to thomas stanton. >> thanks very much, mark. good afternoon. i think it is acting in. it is a pleasure to join you today at the cato institute. i am extremely grateful to kato and want to express my thanks. years ago i wrote a monograph that raised questions about the financial soundness of fannie mae and freddie mac and i wrote the book that mark alluded to, a state of risk, government sponsored enterprise could be the next financial crisis. and in a and freddie mac didn't like my autograph and they didn't like my book. >> and they didn't like you. >> and suddenly it became a little chilly. catherine england who at the t
, alex. >> chris, in terms of this, we've been talking a little bit about this reverse 911 call, which makes it sound like some students were not at school yet or the school was trying to take every measure possible to insure that parents were informed as to the situation, which seems to be a very quick response on their end in terms of getting the information out there and trying to calm understandably very concerned parents. >> this is something that technology has done that is tremendously helpful in situations like this, that they have this reverse 911 situation set up because, obviously, previously, and i remember this from having covered the columbine shooting very extensively, a lot of the information would come out at that point anecdotally that parents calling parents and even more chaos could enshoe because people don't know what's going on. at least the initial bit of information that gets out there to parents is information that the school is rabl to control isible to get people there who they want there, where they want them to come, so it gives at least officials on the s
really important. the other thing you asked about with the parent when sunset is referring to alex's dad. >> they are referring to his mom and dad being upset with him for not standing up for himself, i just wanted to cringe. >> what's clear is when dad said if you don't make a stop, this could happen to your little sister. then the sister gets in on it and it's, like, just puts the, as sisters will do, but i think as a, as someone who was a boy and had difficult conversations with my dad, i really really remember that sort of punch them, make it go away. a lot of families will give that advice. i'm not even convinced that's the wrong advice, the problem is when they doesn't work, then they shut down and quit coming to you because they are afraid it's a double disappointment. they can't please their peers and find friendship and then they so don't want to lose their fathers as well, this boy-father thing is so deep. >> every single person in this room wants to start making a difference. we want to start doing it right now. ros, how do you start giving a child the dignity that
